and the democratic party will pick up a senate seat. bill clinton spoke in indianapolis and exposed the tea party rhetoric in what mike murdoch wanted to do. it's not acceptable to the american people. i do believe the republican party is trying to trick everybody and the press is somewhat compliant because they know when these things are not true. host: as we said, in our last hour-and-a-half we will focus on the key races in the house. we will have the executive directors of the national congressional committees from the democratic and republican parties. princeton professor julian zelizer r will be with us next to talk about the importance of past debates. that's next as we continue our conversation about tonight's vice presidential debate in danville, kentucky. there is the stage. live coverage this morning and continuing throughout. tonight we will have a preview program at 7:00 p.m. eastern and the debate at 9:00 p.m. we will be right back. >[video clip] >> this government has maintained the closest surveillance of the soviet military buildup on the island of cuba. within the past week, unm

. that is inaccurate. hillary clinton, hillary clinton was the one who called assad a reformer. paul ryan was correct when he said that. the main foreign policy point to take away from last night's debate was the fact that vice president biden continues to mislead the american people what happened in benghazi. we saw sworn testimony this week that said the state department officials in benghazi had requested extra security. last night vice president biden said that was not true. they had not heard that. when the first attacks were made, the administration went out and said that it was because of protests, because of a youtube video. then we found out that wasn't true. so today the obama administration has a lot of questions to answer, why they're misleading the american people and who is right in these different circumstances. jon: and then there was this exchange with moderator martha raddatz from abc about taxes. i want to play you a clip of that. >> in terms of style, you know, joe biden is joe biden. he is authentic and he is real and he is straightforward and he --. jon: that was actually, that
president, erick, of the united states, bill clinton describe what he says is a changed mitt romney. >> i had a different reaction to that first debate than a lot of people did. i thought, wow. here's old moderate mitt. where you been, boy? i missed you all these last two years. >> erick, has mitt romney done the etch-a-sketch move to the center these last few weeks? >> oh, i think everybody moves -- gosh, i wish bill clinton is on the campaign trail. he's so much fun to listen to. this is moderate mitt. although i don't know that it matters. a lot of the polling that's come out show a lot of voters still consider mitt romney, even those who saw the debate and the polling after the debate consider romney more conservative than they are and consider closer to him than barack obama. i'm not sure the moderate mitt care kature really matters. >> this poll that came out, a bunch of states asked the question among likely voters, who has strong leadership qualities between these two candidates? look at the quinnipiac university cbs news, "new york times" poll in colorado. mitt romney, 67% strong

policy issues when he joined up with then governor clinton on that ticket. that's an importants a tribute. >> jennifer: one thing he is disciplined, and my guess is he is boning up on every bit of foreign policy that he can. kiki thank you to suchmor joining us inside "the war room." up next how is mitt romney's momentum, and i really hate even saying that -- how is that momentum translating in swing states? (vo) what is said here could decide the election. current tv presents coverage of the vice presidential debate. with unrivaled analysis and commentary. >> was this the game changer? is this going to change the dynamic? (vo) the only network with real-time reaction straight from the campaigns and from viewers like you. >> so keep on tweeting and maybe you'll have your voice be part of this democracy and see your tweets up on our screen. >>now that's politically direct. cu >> jennifer: you're back inside "the war room," i'm jennifer grandholm. both president obama and governor romney are pulling out all of the stops to win colorado's nine electoral votes. the
-2008 campaign and biden beat both hillary clinton and barack obama in a number of debates. everybody talks about his gaffes and they forget he is a good debatetor and he has a capacity for empathy for average people. and he can just explain stuff quite well. so i think he will put ryan on the griddle and take the interview with chris wallace and say look, you've got time. you said the math is too complicated. don't give us talk about base lines. tell us how you're going to do this. >> e.j., thanks for being here. i appreciate it. >> good to be with you. >>> up next, the grave international implications of having people in our american congress who hold elaborate conspiracy theories about dinosaur farts. sorry. that's next. seriously. >>> this time every year it's the same good news, bad news, high-low kind of feeling. it's the day we learn there are super smart people in the world winning prizes for their super smartness and most of the time we also learn we are not smart enough to get what they are wivening for. this year it's a french and american physicist who wo
whose the likely democratic nominee in 2016? >> i see they're going to the hillary clinton or -- everybody thinks she is at least going to give it a serious look in nobody knows for sure. terry mcauliffe is out there somewhere. terry, what do you think? [laughter] >> you know comment. or who else? >> martin o'malley certainly is going to make a run. >> i assure you there will be no private equity person running for president. [laughter] if romney is not elected who will be the presumptive nominee for the republicans in 2016? is paul ryan presumptive then? >> you will have to fight senator marco rubio ford. marco rubio had a fantastic, great speaker but they seem to be the clear front-runners. we think of in a chris christie of new jersey will also go for it. governor bobby jindal of louisiana already fighting for a. >> let's assume for a moment obama is reelected and we have heard hillary clinton is going to step down as secretary secretary of state and tim geithner will step down as secretary of treasury. if romney is elected who will be the secretary of state and the secr

(sfx: sound of piano smashing) roadrunner: meep meep. meep meep? (sfx: loud thud sound) what a strange place. geico®. fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more on car insurance. like in a special ops mission? you'd spot movement, gather intelligence with minimal collateral damage. but rather than neutralizing enemies in their sleep, yoargeting stocks to trade. well, that's what trade architect's heat maps do. they make you a trading assassin. trade architect. td ameritrade's empowering w
was even a month clinton among folks who did not care for joe biden, when he left or smiled, their attention was on those smiles and not what mr. paul ryan was saying. i do not think joe biden's facial expressions heard at all. it is scranton joe. he will occasionally make a gas. -- a gaff. he is not on a teleprompter. he most. that is everything we complain about. they are on teleprompter as an art overly scripted. when you get a real person on -- biden, -- like joe biden i did not think there was any major gaffes. the end analysis is the biggest question is, did biden man age to lose the dial -- move the dial? i do not know. he clearly did a good job. i suspect he won the debate. did he move the dial? i do not know. i cannot imagine after watching this debate who is still undecided. these two men provided very articulate, well reasoned, to completely different reasons for where this is headed. >> students will have a chance to see all this up close and personal when the debate process makes its way to win university later in the month. thank you very much. >> always a plea
as president is the same thing that ronald reagan did and, frankly, bill clinton did. hold your principles. be tough. in the end you know you have to negotiate, and that's the only way this country can move forward. that is what president romney will do, and that's the president that people saw potential president that people saw next president they saw debating the other night. >> governor strickland, the last few seconds to you. is it going to be a closer race than it has been when we see the results come out? >> of course, ohio cannot be taken for granted, candy, by any candidate or either political party. it will be a very close race. i believe because of the president's saving of the american auto industry, which, in fact, is realed to manufacturing jobs in ohio, and ohio is coming back, and we're grateful for that, but the president deserves, many my judgment, the lion's share of the credit for ohio's economy, and its rebound. >> from ohio governor ted strickland. ohio attorney general and former senator mike dewine, thank you both for being here. >> up next, making sense to the eyeb
was that in 2007 and 2008 running against hillary clinton, running against barack obama, it was biden who are often than not who would steal the show at those democratic debates. it never actually translated into votes for him but he impressed people in the obama campaign as somebody they wanted to have out there. you go farther back in his career when he first ran for president in 1988, he got derailed by a bit of a plagiarism scandal, but when he was using his own words, he was one heck of an orator. that was his reputation. a really strong communicator. i look at biden and his debate skills and communication skills, and i say escapable of doing what barack obama either couldn't or wouldn't do last week against mitt romney. >> right. professor reich, paul ryan is known for being an encyclopedia of numbers but can he effectively counter headlines like this one today, "gm to add 2,000 jobs in michigan"? if this race comes down to ohio and the auto rescue plays a major role there, that's a tough headline to counter for mr. ryan, isn't it? >> it certainly is. and what people in ohio and in the midwes
, he will have to find a way to bring this down. bill clinton could do this easi easily. wait a second, if you're not going to tell the public i will tell the public what's in your plan. here are the three things you have to know. the president is going to have to find a which to keep bringing him down to the specifics and not let this guy who looks kind of presidential, sounds like a yoep, just wing it from here on out and not really be held accountable for what he says or what he has said. >> but richard, to what he just said, the polls are suggesting that it's actually being quite efficacious for mitt romney to give a top line but no content, no details. >> well -- >> that duth suggests that the decker to rat isn't listening. >> debates can change the course of the race but generally you have to look at all three presidential debates and see where things are. we're in a very volatile moment because things are moving quite clearly after that first debate. and it's very hard to know where things will settle other than the historical precedent when we saw it happen for instance in 2004
watched the debates in the 2007-2008 campaign and biden beat both hillary clinton and barack obama in a number of debates. everybody talks about his gaffes and they forget he is a good debatetor and he has a capacity for empathy for average people. and he can just explain stuff quite well. so i think he will put ryan on the griddle and take the interview with chris wallace and say look, you've got time. you said the math is too complicated. don't give us talk about base lines. tell us how you're going to do this. >> e.j., thanks for being here. i appreciate it. >> good to be with you. >>> up next, the grave international implications of having people in our american congress who hold elaborate conspiracy theories about dinosaur farts. sorry. that's next. seriously. tridion safety cell which can withstand over three and a half tons. small in size. big on safety. which can withstand over three and a half tons. if we want to improve our schools... ...what should we invest in? maybe new buildings? what about updated equipment? they can help, but recent research shows... ...nothing tran
and that was going to be government-run, it was the test case for hillary clinton health care. and i have to tell you, we still had the same number of uninsured coming into our hospitals and seeking treatment. the thing is, chris, you don't have an example where government-run health care has increased access, lowered cost, and gotten more individuals into the health insurance rolls. >> i thought that that's what governor romney bragged about doing in massachusetts. >> i think that when you look at government-run health care, what you do not have is an example -- >> romney was wrong in massachusetts? so he was wrong in massachusetts? >> romney tried something that worked for massachusetts. he feels like letting the states solve the issue, and i agree with that, let the states take this up. just like with our medicaid. >> okay. so government-run doesn't mean government-run? >> on a bipartisan basis that say send it back to the states. >> okay. back to my question, you didn't answer it. if a fertilized egg of a human being is a person, then someone who has an abortion is a murderer because that's a per
